Rubio’s 

I can always count on Rubio’s for the quintessential fish taco!

Homemade Carne Asada 

Outstanding carne asada from Stater Bros in Ramona!  Their flap meat is consistently excellent.  


The Par Lounge 

Outstanding Pastrami Burger at The Par Lounge.  Not normally on their menu but a special item during this recent visit.  Always in the top tier of burgers in Ramona. 

The Oaks Grille 

Outstanding brunch recently at The Oaks Grille. I ordered the Biscuits & Gravy Breakfast for $9.95. Includes two eggs cooked “your way” and two pieces of bacon or sausage. Being that it was weekend brunch, it also included two complimentary glasses of champagne!

The dish consisted of two biscuits cut into four halves. Biscuits were on the softer side with no discernible crispy edges. Gravy was thick, flavorful and hearty with a very conservative amount of sausage nodules. It seemed that if this gravy had sat around too long, it could be used as some sort of binding agent in various construction trades. Big chubby sausage links were very tasty. And my scrambled eggs were cooked perfectly! Not all overdone, brown and tough.

Not the best B&G I’ve had in town, but it was respectable. Next time I’ll probably try the country fried steak.

Wendy’s 

Probably one of the most pathetic looking sandwiches I’ve had from Wendy’s.  The so-called Crispy Chicken BLT may have looked like a sad sack, but it was actually very tasty.  This was kind of a surprise because I usually get expertly crafted, nice looking sandwiches and burgers from Wendy.  And of course you can never go wrong with an order of Baconator Fries!


The Par Lounge 

Best chicken tender appetizer in town is at The Par Lounge, that I can tell you!  Likely frozen and off the Sysco truck, it’s still a high quality, fried chicken tender.  Coupled with their hot, crispy fries, it’s a meal in itself.  Pairs perfectly with ranch dressing, BBQ sauce and a draft IPA. 

Los Amigos

Not the best carne asada burrito in town but definitely the closest!  I can’t think of a more perfect takeout meal when you don’t feel like cooking. 

Plaza Grill 

Loaded Fajita Fries at Barona Casino’s Plaza Grill are just outstanding!  One of the best, most beautiful dishes they make.  One of our new favorite restaurants near Ramona, they also make great clam chowder.  Can’t resist ordering a cup whenever we go!


Mi Casa Reveles 

Outstanding order of rolled tacos at Mi Casa Reveles!

Marinade on Main 

Another outstanding brunch recently at Marinade On Main! This was an original, unique, kicked up Benedict, the likes I’ve never had before. Although not on the menu, it seems to be available recently upon special request. Made with your choice of bacon or ham, it includes kale, two poached eggs and an excellent, flavorful housemade chipotle hollandaise sauce. The foundation is the biggest, best hot biscuit around. Such a tremendous meal, I’m so glad we came in to try it.
